Did your waters break both times?

Just curious as my waters broke spontaneously with my first labour and then a few hours later I felt contractions. I’m now 24 weeks pregnant and wondering if it’s more likely to happen this way again ?!

@MichelleOR84 in my case yes. My waters broke first, and contractions came few hours in each pregnancy.

Nope. Out of 8dc,dc1 was the only one where the waters went before labour. Dc5 and 6 my waters were broken by the midwife to speed up labour, the rest went spontaneously just before delivery

First time they leaked, ending in induction a few days later. Second time they gushed and led to labour with no intervention.

All three DC waters going were my first sign of labour. DC1 was I felt like I was weeing myself for about 4 hours! DC2 went in the midwife's office as I arrived for my appointment!

I had inductions with both of mine so have never gone into labour spontaneously. With DS1 they didn't break until I was pushing, with DS2 they were artificially broken as part of the process

No. Waters went first with DD1, with DD2 they went very last minute when I started pushing so totally different.

Mine only went once in fully blown labour both times, I’d already been having strong contractions for over 6 hours.
